As promised, just before I go to bed (I have to be up at 8am tomorrow! EIGHT!) here’s a ‘pre-Faroes’ self-portrait. Taken on the weak premise that I wanted to see just how hot my ‘layers’ setup actually is. And then, once the camera started clicking and the sun started setting… Well, you can see the result for yourself.

And I am smiling! Just a little smile, but you can’t see it very clearly. A thoughtful smirk.

(Click for full size, it’s worth it, to check out the hair. Can just about make out my dimple too, actually.)

My sister (who cut my hair) said I look like a mod; a little like Rod Stewart in fact. I think I look like Liam Gallagher. Neither of those options are particularly favourable. Let’s see what 17 days of salty wind does to it…

Holiday mode!
Rain, fog, cloud, drizzle... lots of water
